What’s it like to live in a place where temperatures drop to minus 65°C? Ask Sergei, a horse breeder from the Sakha region in Russia. Yakutiya, or the Sakha Republic, is situated in northeastern Siberia, a land famous for its austere climate. The region is predominantly populated by ethnic Sakha people and has two official languages: Russian and Sakha. Sergei’s family lives in a small village bordering the Arctic Circle but he is only a visitor in his own house due to his seasonal migration for work. In the winter, he resides in the mountains so he can look after his horses and reindeers.
The film was shown at Berlinale last year and recently won the main award of international “Green Film Festival” network.
It is a first film screening in what we hope will become a monthly event with the latest and most interesting green documentaries from around the world in BTH. The event is organized by the SI NFGL-Blekinge & the Russian Green Documentary Film Festival ECOCUP.
This is an open event for all.
Venue: Blekinge Institute of Technology- Multisalen
